This is an excellent little book on clinical chemistry and microscopy. It is divided into three parts: general laboratory technics, qualitative, physical and general investigations, and quantitative micro methods. Introductory remarks relate to the handling of glassware, weighing, making the solutions, reagents and bacterial stains. This part is well done. The first chapter deals with investigation of sputum, stomach contents and duodenal juices. The second chapter relates to general investigations of intestinal contents, chemical and microscopic.

It is abreast of the time but rather superficial. The sixth chapter discusses spinal fluid, sixteen pages in all. It gives details of
